Ministers urge public to use new Aranguez Pavilion to strengthen community bonds
The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (SporTT), this week handed over the long awaited Aranguez Savannah Pavilion. Residents of the area now have access to enhanced facilities in the iconic park.
Receiving the keys and official documents were Hon. Shamfa Cudjoe, Minister of Sport and Community Development, Hon. Terrance Deyalsingh, St Joseph MP, the Chairman and CEO of the San Juan Laventille Regional Corporation Anthony Roberts and Dianne Lakhan and SporTT’s CEO Jason Williams along with Board member Hayden Mitchell.
Minister Hon. Shamfa Cudjoe urged residents to use the facilities to build a sense and spirit of community through the various sporting activities that they will be practicing there. She noted that smaller facilities such as this are integral to the community life blood of this country.
MP and Minister of Health, Hon. Terrance Deyalsingh urged his constituents to use the facility wisely and be watchmen to ensure that it is not defaced and kept safe for all ages of users.
The facility was completed within budget of approximately five million TT dollars. SporTT CEO Jason Williams says the unique double-sided design is well placed and noted the excellent job done by the project team. The pavilion can hold a total of three hundred persons (one hundred and fifty per side). There are two team washroom and shower areas, male and female public toilets, as well as storage (under tiers and internal). A conference area in the upper floor with toilet facilities and kitchenette lends to Minister Cudjoe’s call for the facility to be a community builder.
